B Doune Castle
Fans of series like Game of Thrones and Outlander will quickly identify this castle. It is the Castle of Winterfell of the Stark family or the Castle of Leoch, respectively. However, its fame initially came to be the setting for The Knights of the Square Table by the Monty Python.
The reason for serving as the setting in so many series and movies is its perfect preservation. Both its outer walls and its interior structure and distribution have remained with little change since the Middle Ages. If you want to discover what castles were like at that time, you will love visiting it.
